Drum Maker !

What I love about running a B and B, apart from, of course, meeting some wonderful, charming people, it is the amazing things that people come to the area to do that constantly astounds me. 
Jude came to make a drum with and arrived with her finished newly created large drum. 

'lovely , friendly, interesting people, a tasty breakfast( and dinner) and a comfortable bed
Thank you Bridget and Geoff I will recommend you and will come again if in this area.

As usual a busy time with stand holders coming to stay , it is always great fun.

Lee and Genna from Dundee 

' We literally couldn't have picked a better place to stay in Bovey Tracey ! 
Bridget and Geoff have been so friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home. It was so nice to be picked up from the airport and saved us a lot of trouble ! 
Good choices for breakfast and very tasty.
Than you both so much for everything and if we're doing the festival next year, there is no doubt that we would be staying here !

For a year now I have been doing airbnb which is an online Bed and Breakfast with a difference booking resource. I have  had lots of lovely people from all over the world come and stay and I am sure many more will continue to come. The advantage of airbnb is that you can see what dates are available and there are reviews of the hosts as well as the visitors on the site so you know more about where you intend to stay and who is coming to stay! Airbnb manage the money side of things. 
I am still happy to take bookings on the telephone and by e mail as well
